than most areas. the key that we have found is really educating people to the need to conserve and really to get meaningful conservation is replacement of plumbing fixtures such as shower heads, toilets, installing faucets and plumbing fixtures and useless water and whether it's through a rebate program. we have some of those as well. those are the ways to get more out there. i think you will be doing a lot of that in the coming months. regarding state departments the mayor issued directives on february 10th to further reduce consumption by 10 percent. since 2008, city departments have reduced their consumption by 22 percent. they have been good conserveers just like the city of san francisco has been. they have to be given credit for that and like everybody else, more can be done and there is a program here to move that forward. the departments including the puc all have to develop their own water conservation plans by august 1st. why it's taken until august 1st? it's to literally target those fixtures that are older that use more water and we have to replace those old plumb

career and technical education caucus to recognize national career and technical education month. this recognizes the contribution these programs make to the american economy along with the important work being done by c.t.e. professionals and teachers. high-paying, high-demand jobs require technical skills and training. c.t.e. programs have been historically uds utilized, yet in -- an era of record-high unemployment, they are key to the skills gap. this is also a time to ask, are we doing enough to ensure people have the skills to lead to a family-sustaining job? i know my colleagues in the caucus have the same concerns. i'm pleased to learn that there is now a senate-organized c.t.e. caucus. i look forward to work with them and mr. langevin of rhode island as we continue to look at c.t.e. programs. the speaker pro tempore: the chair lays before the house the following personal requests. the clerk: leaves of absence requested for mr. nugent of florida for today, mr. pastor of arizona for today and the balance of they have -- of the week and mr. rush of illinois for today and the

it back in front of the board of education for a vote. we have been engaged in conversations with the police chief since the last board vote and we were hope in all he would reconsider and actually make some amendments that you passed at the last board meeting where this came before you. he did give us some occasions that indications that he would be working with you through the resolution in some internal ways. here today speaking on behalf of coleman advocates as well as other yutd -- youth groups in the process we are going to try continue the battle to ensure that you put back in the resolution that the police chief wasn't comfortable in signing. i want to thank you for your hard work and look forward to a positive relationship. thank you very much. >> thank you, laura fair. i'm a statewide elective with statewide council and would like to thank you for all the work with the council and we are disappointed that the chief did not agree to the amendments that were very strong and we were very appreciative of the board for taking those extra steps to try to make certain
did not agree to some the revisions that the board of education strongly recommended but at this point all the work done i would like to emphasize that really this is what we talked about earlier let this be a living document and not something on the shelf and we as the board of education hold it in high regard this is also part of our charge to protect the young people that go to our schools and if authority figures somehow don't abide by some of the rules we have in place and use all of the things that are not necessary to come to find out information they need or places where justice can be served we need to step forward and be the leads. i want to insure we as a board are very, very having any lentd about the reporting and the information sharing, our own documentation through our own data gathering and mechanisms and that they match with was the san francisco police department has and our activity and around our schools. that's what i wanted to insure we spoke about publicly and on the record for myself as a board member so long as i'm on the board and can say for this police car

, all right. let's start with education. 23% of children, of all children get -- of all the children that get pre-k are black. less than half of all black children get pre-k so it starts very early, and what happens is as they get older, black children do poorer and poorer versus white and asian and even hispanic children, and it just continues to go, so education gap happens. then the unemployment gap happens because the education -- they are falling behind in education. unemployment numbers for black kids are so much higher than everyone else, and then the third one, and the most damaging thing is the household income and the net worth of black families is far below whites, asians and hispanics, and it all starts, and i think president barack obama and bill o'reilly are right, it starts with the pre-k education. start offering pre-k to more kids, black, white, hispanics, america will be a better play. >> that's what de blasio wants to put forward in new york. found a point of agreement. dana, a good idea? have people tried to do it before? what are your thoughts? >> sure, there's b
